First Alert Forecast: dry pattern setting in over southeast North Carolina

Your First Alert Forecast for Wednesday evening Mar. 3, 2021

WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) - Good Wednesday evening to you! Your First Alert Forecast opened with a changing sky. Earlier showers delivered about two-tenths of an inch of rain to Wilmington; there was a little less to the north and several tenths more for some spots south of the city. Temperatures struggled through the 40s under the drab clouds and amid chilly northeast breezes, however with some late day sun highs charged into the lower 60s and as a bonus we had a nice sunset this evening.

In your First Alert Forecast for the longer range... Thursday looks sunny and seasonable, Friday will be equally bright but cooler, and the weekend continues to trend chilly and mainly dry. Another warming trend is setting up for next week as high pressure drifts offshore. The only shower chance over the next seven days is a small one Saturday, as weak trough moves through the region.
